Order: Coraciiformes

Description

As defined by Clements (2007), this taxon includes Kingfishers, Todys, Motmots, Bee-eaters, Rollers, Ground-rollers, the Cuckoo Roller, Hoopoes, Woodhoopoes, and Hornbills1.

Taxonomy

Coraciiformes is an order in the class Aves.

Recent phylogenetic studies suggest that this order will be split in future. It appears that the Kingfishers, Todys, Motmots, Bee-eaters, Rollers and Ground-Rollers are more closely related to Piciformes (Woodpeckers and allies) than to the Hornbills and Hoopoes2. The Cuckoo Roller is even more distantly related2.
